Ed Murray, Seattle mayor:

“Seahawks will win, 24-14. Don’t ask me why ...”

Jay Inslee, Washington governor:

“Seahawks 24, Broncos 20: Seattle is built for this moment and environment. The NFC was the more dominant conference and (the Seahawks’) division was the most dominant.”

Tim Froemke, aka Seahulk:

“Just like the preseason. 40-10. I really think our defense is so incredible. It’s gonna be a blowout.”

Adam Morrison, former Gonzaga and NBA player:

“Seahawks 24, Broncos 20. Good defense.”

Margaret Larson, host of “New Day Northwest”:

“Seahawks, 27-20.”

Tom Douglas, chef:

“Hawks by seven. Now they’re guaranteed to lose.”

Sir Mix-A-Lot, hip-hop artist

“Seahawks 27, Broncos 24. The Seahawks will probably use time of possession to keep Manning at bay. We win the turnover battle, as usual.”

Joel McHale, “Community” and “The Soup”:

“Final score will be 4 to 2 … or Hawks by 70.”

John Olerud, former Mariner:

“I’m going to say Seahawks, 28-24, being the football expert that I am.”

Howard Lincoln, Mariners CEO:

“Seahawks will win, but it will be as close a game as it was last week (the 23-17 win over the 49ers).”

Shawn Kemp, former Sonics forward:

“Seahawks 28, Broncos 21. We get to Peyton Manning early, and he struggles with his timing with his receivers. The defense leads the way. Then Russell throws a long touchdown in the fourth quarter.”

Roger Craig, former 49ers running back:

“I predict Denver to win, 24-17.”

J.T. The Brick, Fox Sports radio:

“Seahawks, 24-23. Believe it or not, I picked Seattle last August, before the first exhibition game. I’ve got to stick with them, even though if I’d known it was the Broncos, I’d never pick against Peyton Manning.”

Mike Holmgren, former Seahawks coach:

“Seahawks are ... going to win, but will have to score some points. It’s a supreme test of a Seahawks defense that’s as good as there is, but they’ll be tested by Manning and the best offensive team in the NFL. Seattle, 31-28.”

Steve Largent, Seahawks’ Hall of Fame receiver:

“My mantra is that defense wins championships, and the Seahawks have a great defense. Seattle, 24-14.”

Warren Moon, Hall of Fame quarterback and Seahawks broadcaster:

“I think it’s going to be more of a 26-21 Seattle type of game. I think as good as our defense is, it’ll be tough to hold them to 20 points. We’re definitely capable of scoring that many. Percy Harvin changes what the defense does.”

Patrick Deneen, cross-country Winter Olympian from Cle Elum:

“Seahawks win 21-0 ... Big call, I know, but I had a chance to spend some time with coach Carroll this fall, along with Richard Sherman and found them both to be quality individuals dedicated and focused on winning.”

Nathan Adrian, Olympic swimming gold medalist:

“The Seattle secondary is going to do some things to Peyton Manning that have never happened to him. And the pass rush is going to put pressure on him. Seattle 21, Denver 17.”

Rev. Jesse Jackson, civil rights activist:

“Seahawks will win ... Peyton Manning has played most of the season in a clean uniform. If anyone can figure out a way to get to him, Pete Carroll can.”
